Watch: J Mascis -- "Circle of Friends (Edie Brickell & The New Bohemians Cover)"
|Who knew J. Mascis was an Edie fan?|
I, one-upper that I am, pointed out that I'd seen the same thing last year, and that I too found it pretty damn impressive.
Then Bailey trumped me. See, he didn't just see Mascis perform. He saw Mascis perform a cover of an Edie Brickell & The New Bohemians song. "Circle of Friends," to be specific. Lucky bastard.
I searched high and low to find a clip of the performance. The best I could find was this performance, which is just a pretty crappy video and wasn't even the SXSW performance Bailey caught, oh well. I did, however, also find a clip of Mascis performing the same song just a few days before SXSW, during an in-store at Newbury Comics, the incredible record store chain based in and around Boston, where I pretty much purchased every single album I bought as a teenager.
Anyway, the performance is pretty great. Moving stuff for sure. I've posted it for your viewing pleasure after the jump. Watch it. Five minutes ago.
